First The Wolverine Footage To Be Released End Of March

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:5592:]]It looks as if we’ll finally get our first look at The Wolverine footage as director James Mangold has hinted that something will debut at the end of March.

Perhaps addressing all the berserker fanboys out there, Mangold offered the following tweets:

Tell me you think we’re lame after you see the teaser. At least then you will be critiquing images from the film, not a marketing window.

From end of March till release, you’ll be saturated. Relax, yuk. I’ve never found the coolest people are the first to arrive at a party.

It was previously rumored that The Wolverine trailer would be released in February, but it’s safe to say that’s been put to the rest.

Regarding what movie the trailer/teaser could be attached to, G.I. Joe Retaliation comes out on March 29th, which looks to be the best guess. The only other “popular” movie toward the end of March is Stephenie “Twilight” Meyer’s The Host, but somehow we don’t see Wolverine debuting with that.

The Wolverine has a July 26th, 2013 release date, and stars Hugh Jackman, Brian Tee, Will Yun Lee, Hiroyuki Sanada, Tao Okamoto, and Rila Fukushima, with Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback on a script adapted from Frank Miller and Christopher Claremont’s comic arc from 1982.

The Wolverine Wraps; Mangold Explains Why Set After X-Men Movies

Hugh Jackman shared the following image of himself on his Facebook with the news that The Wolverine has wrapped.

Celebrating the wrap of Wolverine with golf in my new Calloway gear. Unfortunately the outfit is better than the score.

In an interview with EW, director James Mangold also explains the reasoning behind placing the movie after the X-Men movies.

I felt it was really important to find Logan at a moment where he was stripped clean of his duties to the X-Men, his other allegiances, and even stripped clean of his own sense of purpose. I was fascinated with the idea of portraying Logan as a ronin – the definition of which is a samurai without a master, without a purpose. Kind of a soldier who is cut loose. War is over. What does he do? What does he face? What does he believe anymore? Who are his friends? What is his reason for being here anymore? I think those questions are especially interesting when you’re dealing with a character who is essentially immortal.

The Wolverine has a July 26th, 2013 release date adapted from Frank Miller and Christopher Claremont’s comic arc from 1982.

Hugh Jackman will also be reprising as Wolverine for Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

The Wolverine Movie Not A Prequel; Official Still Released; Follows X-Men Movies

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3710:]]

Yesterday saw a new image of Hugh Jackman from The Wolverine make its way on to the net depicting the bone claws, which sees Logan previous to the adamantium-bonding process.

Now, Empire Online has released an official image still as well as some more details about the movie.

It was thought that The Wolverine took place in Logan’s early years as it’s set in Japan, with fans assuming it to be a prequel to the X-Men movies.

However, that’s not the case.

Director James Mangold lets it be known that the movie will be more of a standalone and follows the X-Men movies.

“Where this film sits in the universe of the films is after them all,” Mangold told Empire Online. “Jean Grey is gone, most of the X-Men are disbanded or gone, so there’s a tremendous sense of isolation for him.”

“I wanted to be able to tell the story without the burden of handing it off to a film that already exists and having to conform to it,” Mangold added.

Mangold also went on to describe The Wolverine as a “Japanese noir picture with tentpole action in it,” and we can’t help but wonder with this news that the movie isn’t a prequel – and with specific mention of Jean Grey – how this spoiler fits in.

The Wolverine has a July 26th, 2013 release date, is being directed by James Mangold, stars Hugh Jackman, with Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback on a script adapted from Frank Miller and Christopher Claremont’s comic arc from 1982.

The Wolverine (2013): Jean Grey School For Higher Learning To Appear?!

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2987:]]

The new The Wolverine movie directed by James Mangold is said to be based on the Frank Miller and Chris Claremont classic comic book from 1982.

However, from the following set image (via ConventryTelegraph) it looks as if Mangold is squeezing in something from the latest Wolverine comic books with the Jean Grey School For Higher Learning — as we see the logo is exactly the same.

While Wolverine used to be a feral bad arse back in the heydays, Marvel Comics has made Logan more of a popular pretty boy who has been neutered. Maybe not to that extreme, but if you are a Wolverine fan you get my drift.

My point is, I thought Mangold was going with the more classic Wolverine, but it looks as if – somehow – he is incorporating the new stuff.

The new Wolverine comic book sees Logan as the headmaster of a new school for gifted children i.e. mutants. 

That’s right Wolverine is a teacher.

The Wolverine Gets A July 26, 2013 Release Date

pic20th Century Fox has announced that The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman, has a July 26th, 2013 release date.

The second of the franchise will be directed by James Mangold, with a script by Christopher McQuarrie and Mark Bomback.

The movie will see Wolverine in Japan feuding with Japanese warriors as well as the Silver Samurai.

Previously, Mangold said the following:

“I think that this movie is much more an intense psychological and action-packed character piece, that’s much more about Logan getting lost in this very unique and insulated world of Japanese culture, gangster culture, and ninja culture,” he said. “The fighting is going to be unique because it’s all influenced by Japanese martial arts.”
